Isabella Day Goldsmith Ltd

Precious Jewellery

We are Isabella Day and Ford Hallam, Artist Jewellers and Goldsmiths with a combined experience of over 50 years at the bench. Our alchemical Renaissance metalwork happens in our magical studio in Devon where we are supported by our studio manager, Jo, our apprentice, Will and our Business administrator, Morgan. Together we are real old-fashioned Goldsmiths making remarkable, contemporary treasure. A rarity today but as tradition dictates, we blend all our own gold alloys and recycle all our metal. We have created over 26 different colours of gold which we then shape, forge and hand craft, entirely in house, into whatever you desire,. Our creative philosophy and sense of colour has led us to specialise in distinct, colourful and ethical gemstones. Ford is the world’s leading expert in Japanese metalsmithing and from this tradition comes much of the decorative technique we employ in our work. Our jewels are textured using Japanese Kinko techniques; working the metal with hammer, punch and chisel. Inspired by historical references from ancient metalworking, we pour for hours over detailed photographs of antique pieces, gaining inspiration and insight into our rich heritage. We say ‘every piece tells a story’. Come and be part of ours.
